MOS burger - Brisbane Sunnybank

Almost 10 years ago, a bunch of enthusiastic high school students roamed wild in Japan and discovered none other than a super awesome burger joint - MOS Burger. From that first bite, all of us fell in love with this Asian style burger so much so that we had all wanted to franchise it back to Sydney. Unfortunately back then, franchises outside of Japan was unavailable (and we had insufficient funds) and hence, our dreams were dropped.

In recent years, MOS burger had opened in HK and we had all tried it. But... it was just not the same. Then one year ago, MOS burger decided to open up in Brisbane. Brisbane? All us Sydney-siders were disappointed. Not only was it in Brisbane, it wasn't even in the city! It was opened up in a heavily Asian-populated suburb of Brisbane (in Sunnybank Plaza), making it even MORE difficult for us to reach! >.<

Nonetheless, whilst in Brisbane, we couldn't NOT hike up to find MOS burger. It may have taken a while to get there, but it was definitely worth it!

There's drinks and soups to choose from. I decided to get the iced matcha latte whilst hubby couldn't look past the creamy corn soup. And boy was it creaminess! And extremely full of corn flavour. My matcha latte was also deliciousness!

The original MOS burger was what my hubby ordered 10 years ago in Japan and so it was the burger he ordered. Super tender beef patty served within two really soft and fluffy buns with a giant slab of tomato and lots of their famous MOS tomato relish, all forming a crazily tasty and yummy burger.

My first order at MOS was a Chicken Teriyaki burger. And I remember how amazingly delicious it was. Luckily, it still is crazily good! Tasty real chunk of chicken marinated with sweet teriyaki sauce and served with super crunchy lettuce (fresher than any lettuce I've had in other burgers) and a massive dallop of mayo. Burger heaven :)

The chips here were really nicely golden and crisp on the outside, good amount of salt flavouring and each chip was almost delicately cooked to perfection. The chicken nuggets were... well, chicken nuggets.

After posting several pics of MOS burger on my FB page, I had a good number of comments about the seafood okonomi rice burger. Hence, on my return to Sunnybank Plaza, I couldn't resist but to order it. It was pretty crazy - well cooked seafood combination of scallops, calamari, prawns wrapped with lettuce, onion stuff and loads of bonito flakes in 2 heavy patty of rice. I'm undecided about the rice buns but the seafood okonomi inside was delicious!

I can't wait til MOS burger decides to come to Sydney!!! :)
